Cashew Cookie Balls

Rev. 23-Oct-2001

  1. Cream together margarine, sugar and vanilla in a small mixing bowl until light.

  2. Stir in flour until blended; mix in cashews.

  3. Shape teaspoonfuls of dough into balls; place 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets.

  4. Bake in preheated 350 F oven 12 to 15 minutes, or until done. Do not overbake.

  5. Cool on wire racks, sprinkle with confectioners' sugar when cooled.

NOTE: Unsalted corn oil margarine and unsalted cashews are a boon to anyone on a low-sodium diet or reducing diet, as restricting salt intake reduces water retention.

Makes 3 dozen cookies.
